According to statistics from the American Bar Association, minority groups in the United States are underrepresented in the legal profession.
While black Americans make up roughly 13% of the US population, they make up just 5% of lawyers. Similarly, hispanic Americans make up over 16% of the population, but just 5% of lawyers.
At Grossman Law we want to do our part to help promote diversity and equal representation in the legal profession. Toward that end, we are offering a an annual $1,500 law school scholarship for members of minority groups seeking a career as an attorney.
